An excellent choice for improved well-being is Shiatsu in Sydney. This ancient Eastern therapy can be used to both treat and prevent pain and injury. Suitable for all ages, it's safe, effective and drug-free.
Holistic Healing Art
Considered a holistic healing art, shiatsu can help on many levels. As a purely practical method of treating painful conditions, it is brilliant. Use it to help with back, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, RSI and sports injuries.
On a deeper level, it can relieve the symptoms of headaches, insomnia, depression, menstrual issues, allergies and asthma.
Shiatsu incorporates pressure point therapy with simple realignments, stretches and gentle joint rotations. In the hands of a qualified therapist, there should be little or no discomfort. In fact, you will probably find the treatment deeply relaxing. It's a great way of getting rid of stress.
Shiatsu sessions always start with a consultation. If it's your first visit your therapist will ask questions about your medical history, current issues and any medications. Be open and honest to get the best diagnosis and treatment.
Traditionally treatment takes place on a soft futon mattress on the floor. Some therapists use a chair or massage table. You remain fully clothed.
Help with Depression
Shiatsu in Sydney works very well with other modalities and medical treatments. These include counselling and psychotherapy, as shiatsu is very effective at relieving depression.
Shiatsu is also one of those therapies that focus on your ki or life force. For the body and mind to be healthy, ki needs to be able to flow smoothly. When ki is blocked by negativity, anger, depression, fear or grief, physical problems manifest themselves.
